Maple Leafs milestones

New, comments

Who could hit big numbers in the blue and white this season?

NHL: Preseason-Ottawa Senators at Toronto Maple Leafs Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight the 101st Toronto Maple Leafs season begins. After hitting the rare milestone of 100 seasons for a sports franchise, there are still plenty of highs for this team and these players to reach.

I took the players from the Maple Leafs roster page on MapleLeafs.NHL.com.

Player Milestones

Goal and Assist dates are calculated using the players current point/goal/assist per game rate based on the NHL games played in the previous three seasons, to avoid low scoring/usage rookie years and to reflect their most recent performance. They could reach these milestones sooner or later than predicted.

Frederik Andersen:
Will hit game #300 in 47 games.
2 wins gives him 150
5 shutouts gets him to 20

Team Milestones

Game #6500 - Saturday March 16th @ Ottawa

Maple Leafs currently have 6,699 points

Maple Leafs would hit 6,700 points exactly with a SO/OTL in game #1

Maple Leafs Could hit 6,800 points exactly with a 101 point season

When the Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup they’ll have 269 playoff wins

The Maple Leafs will win Stanley Cup #14 this season

Nothing is 100% accurate but some players could hit some huge milestones this year, personally, and in the NHL record books. It’s going to be a fantastic year.
